VERY disappointed. We made reservations so the wait wasn't very long. It was just a party of two –me and my husband. But, I’m guessing our party of two didn't amount too much. They shoved us in a small corner. Our table was in the middle of two other small tables. We were so close to the parties on either side of us that we could practically hear them breathe. Oh and not mention pass gas. Disgusting. Our table was in a dark section with nothing cool around us. Everyone with parties of 3 or more got these really cool "kitchen" tables. We got there and waited and waited and waited for our waitress to take our order. The table next to us got sat and still we were not waited on. Finally she shows up. Instead of taking our order since we were there first and waited longer, she takes the order of the gassy couple next to us. From the reviews I was expecting the waitress to have sass and "yell" at us. You know put on a show. We finally got a little bit out of her but it wasn't that great. Food was ok. I got the fried chicken and husband got the pot roast. He loved his pot roast and ate everything on his plate. Though as much as he liked it he did agree the pot roast at Liberty Tree Tavern in Magic Kingdom was better. They gave me LOTS of chicken. Portion was huge. The dark meat was pretty good but a little greasy. I really liked the mash potatoes and the green beans were mediocre. At this point my blood sugar was running low so I ate it. Disney - I get you feel the need to accommodate the millions of tourist by =squishing us in like pigs in a blanket. We get yelled out and told to move in the center of the room or go all the way to end of the row. But for the love of snickers can you make an exception during lunch and dinner? I would like to have a peaceful lunch without smelling the person's body odor at the table next to me. This is Florida you. The humid is high and people sweat. Give me my space!

Loved it - good home cooked meal for me. Fried Chicken just like grandma. The staff was quirky and fun. Great place.

I was first here over 20 years ago when my nieces were 1 and 3. It was special then and special now. Generally, I don't go to Disney for the quality food - if you know what I mean. But this place is an exception, the food is great and you must try (but I suggest sharing) the PB&J Milk shake - it is just too sweet for one person. The Theme is Mom's kitchen in the 50's and the servers will talk to you like you are a kid "elbows off the table" "Put away your phone" be prepared for that, it's an act. Overall, since I like American food, I love this place. The Chicken Pot Pie was better years ago (a real pot pie - it was my first pot pie ever). But there is good American food for everyone. 20 Years later I love to stop here with my grown nieces!

Not going to name names here.. but was greatly disappointed about my service when they forgot in my reservation to celebrate a friend's 30th birthday. Worse, I reminded them when I came 15 minutes early for my reservation. I don't know if I should blame our waitress or a technical problem.. but I was told at the main desk they knew it was her birthday. So when trying to keep it a surprise I notified a cast member to tell our waitress that she forgot.. but our waitress decided to give me a lip about it. I still gave her a great tip. She was amazing.

This was the first of two restaurants we ate in at Hollywood Studios (the other was the Brown Derby). We ate at 6 different restaurants throughout all the parks during our 5 days in Walt Disney World. This was by far the best if not the best of all of them! The atmosphere is amazing. The wait staff were not just good but funny with their one-liners and humorous joke cracking. We both had Wedge Salads for appetizer. We ordered Grandma's Chicken Pot Pie and Aunt Liz's Golden Fried Chicken for dinner. Both were good and you can't go wrong with either, but wow to the Fried Chicken. The portions were generous too. We were so full that we couldn't even think of desert which was a real shame because the group next to us had some amazing looking sundaes. Of all the restaurants that we visited through all of Walt Disney World, this is the one that we both agreed we will be coming back to.

The food was great. The portions were good. The bartenders could use some more training. The best part about the 50's Prime Time Cafe is the interaction you can have with the staff.

The food is comfort food like mom made. I had the sampler with fried chicken, meatloaf and pot roast all of which were good as were the accompanying vegetables. The servers also treat you like "mom", reminding you (sometimes sternly) to keep your elbows off the table and clean your plate. Overall a good experience with tasty food and Disney's typically good service. As ever, the only complaint is the pricey nature of everything at Disney.

This place is a Disneyfied knock off of the great Ed Debevic's crossed with the Cafe 80's in Back to the Future II. The restaurant is crammed with little ends of booths with a black and white TV showing clips of 50's shows on them. I guess their "theme" is that you are at "home" and your waitress and all the other diners are your cousins. Our waitress had no interest in playing along with the theme, other than calling us cousins. I tried to play along with her, but it was ignored. So there is the restaurant theme out the window, so all we have left is the food. I could not decide between the pot roast and the meatloaf. Which the waitress said both were great, so I ordered the combo plate. Along with a Chocolate& Strawberry Malt. So the Malts come out first. They resembled no Malt that I have ever had. It looked like they made a chocolate shake and a strawberry shake and then poured them into the tin so one side of the tin was chocolate and the other was strawberry, then they put a tablespoon of malt across the line on top. The waitress then poured it into the glass, which was HOT from the wash and immediately I had chocolate strawberry milk with a clump of malt on the bottom. Not that it was any better in the metal cup with the rest of the drink which was liquid rather than thick like a malt or shake should be. Should be thick enough to eat with a spoon and thin enough to suck through a straw. Being able to tell that there is ice cream in it is paramount. There were unblended strawberries in it, like full halves, which clogged the straw. Then out come the entrees, and I was excited, I love meatloaf and pot roast. I was appalled. The food was awful. The meatloaf was tasteless except for the sauce, which tasted like cooked katsup. The pot roast more closely resembled pulled pork than beef, the vegetables were julianned as garnish, rather than carrots and the like cooked in the stew. When I think of pot roast I am looking forward to the stewed veggies, not a raw baby carrot julianned as colorful garnish. I was so disappointed that I sent it back and got the "chicken pot pie" which was not really a pot pie, but more like a chicken soup with a pie crust placed on top of it. It was better than the others, but I would never go back there to eat again.
